Love this saw!
Purchased this saw in February 2020 and had been eyeing it for about a year. It was a major upgrade from what I had before and is so easy to use. I pretty much use it everyday and have had no issues. The handles make it easy to move from place to place and the port on the back makes it a simple connection to hook up my dust collector. Would definitely recommend for a novice or professional.

I bought this for a complete basement remodel. I haven't found anything yet to slow this machine down. It works amazing smooth slide. It is very heavily built and super solid no slack anywhere.

Definitely one of the best tools in my shop. I use it for almost every project. When I bought it a few months ago it came with a stand. Dewalt has a reputation for quality and they do cost a little more than other brands but well worth it.

Great saw!
Purchased this saw a couple years with the stand and use it daily. Easy to adjust, replace blades, etc. I sometimes travel with the saw and can easily detach from the stand and carry each independently.

From job site to hobby garage, this saw does it all. I bought this a few weeks ago and have been impressed with the capabilities it has. Whether I'm cutting pressure treated 2x12 or 6" oak crown molding, this saw does it.

if you buy this produduct they give you free the heavy-duty miter saw stand?
jorge f on Jan 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, sometimes. It depends on if they are offering the stand as a free special or not. It will say on the page for the saw if the stand is being offered. The free stand does not automatically come with the saw.
Does it have the laser line ?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It uses a light which brightens the cutting deck and casts a strong, thin shadow for a cut line. I like the feature.

Are you offering this saw with the free heavy duty stand with purchase still?
N on May 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We are not currently offering the free stand with miter saw purchase promotion.
Can the depth of the cut be adjusted to stop and stay at that depth of cut. I want to be able to make a mortise. The older model of this saw was able to do this, will the dws780 also be able to do the same?
If it will, thats the saw for me.
Michael on Jan 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this item may be adjusted to stay at a level cut.
Does this saw come with the feet that quick release mount to the stand?
